Volume of Donald Trump's nativist talk rises in face of criticism

Volume of Donald Trump's nativist talk rises in face of criticism”

"You can't change history, but you can learn from it", he tweeted.

"The President has not been able to demonstrate the ability or competence that he needs to be successful", said Mr Corker, whom Mr Trump had considered for the job of secretary of state.

Another Republican senator, Dan Sullivan, also said on Twitter: "Anything less than complete & unambiguous condemnation of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK by (Trump) is unacceptable".

"Also the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!"

The South Carolina Republican, who is one of the GOP's most outspoken Trump critics, sharply criticized Trump's denouncement of "many sides" of the protests in Virginia.

He accused "publicity-seeking" Graham of falsely stating his position on the demonstrators, called Flake "toxic" and praised a Flake primary election opponent.

Democrats already are fundraising on the issue, with former President Barack Obama lending his name to a DNC email that urges recipients to sign up to "help Democrats defend our values and defeat bigotry at every level". Marco Rubio and Gov. John Kasich have taken to Twitter to condemn Trump's comments, Carson believes their criticism could go further.

"No moral president would ever shy away from outright condemning hate, intolerance and bigotry", Cohen said. You had a group on the other side that was also very violent. After all, the Republican Party - that is, the president's party - holds majorities in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.

"Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both".

US stocks suffered their biggest drop in three months on Thursday as the turmoil surrounding the White House sapped investor confidence that Trump's ambitious economic agenda would become reality. "Thank you all!" Trump tweeted from NY. Advisers hunkered down, offering no public defense while privately expressing frustration with his comments. Among Republicans, 68 percent said Trump was accurate in blaming white supremacists and counter-protesters; just 10 percent of Democrats agreed.

Mr Trump has alienated Republicans, corporate leaders and USA allies, rattled markets and prompted speculation about possible White House resignations with his comments since Saturday's violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, which came in the aftermath of a white nationalist protest against the removal of a Confederate statue.

Trump, staying at his golf club in New Jersey, was increasing rather than slowing his tweet-a-thon.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has also faced criticism for his failure to denounce the president's words.

President Donald Trump has ripped open a can of worms the United States has long put a lid on.

The White House announced that Mr Trump had chose to cancel plans to assemble a President's Advisory Council on Infrastructure.

Bykowicz reported from Washington.
